We played tourist this afternoon

We worked this morning getting our lesson ready for Monday.  We left about 1:30 to be a tourist.  We went to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. We had a great time.  I am amazed that they keep these museums free.  Here are some of the things we saw.
We saw the Hope Diamond today.  It is a deep blue 45.52 caret diamond.  It is suppose to be the most famous diamond in the world.

Andrew Jackson. 

I am always surprised to come upon buildings that you have heard about for ever. 

We bumped into the white house today. 

We try to take the Metro when ever possible.  It is so hard to drive around the city.  

This is the Foggy Bottom Metro stop.  We use it all the time. 


  1. Dad looks like an appetizer for that shark. I can't believe how big the mouth is!

  2. You're got to play tourist more often! My favorite is the modern art wing at the Smithsonian--all the Calder mobiles and wire sculptures. So fun!
